Hi, so I'm fairly new to DACs and the audiophile world in general, other than just an general knowledge/awareness of high end systems for home theaters and such. So when it comes to desktop hardware, I currently have an xDuoo XD-05 to drive my HiFiMan open back phones. What kind of advantage would this DAC offer over the xDuoo, and would it be more dependent on the source (i.e., my PC's sound card vs. USB connection to my phone)? Would I be noticing a distinct difference? Just curious since the hardware is priced in about the same range. Thx!

This product is not a DAC but an amp, which means it will only amplify the signal output by a DAC.
